Who we are...
Yorkshire based Hospitality Staffing UK is made up of three key people, all of whom have a mixture of hospitality recruitment and Industry experience.
Richard Morris MREC - Owner
Richard has worked in recruitment for over 10 years, and has always recruited for the Hospitality sector. During the ealy part of his career he focused on temporary recruitment, he has since moved to focus purely on permanent recruitment. Richard is the back bone of the business, and is heavily involved with client relations, new sales and the servicing of contracts. He gets involved with interview of candidates, and spends a lot of his time visiting clients to understand their requirements.
Richard is very passionate about the business and has an extensive knowledge of Hotels across the UK. 'The key to a successful partnership is understanding how each other works. If hospitality recruitment agents do the job properly, then they can be a vital ingredient to helping businesses develop and become more successful'.

Helen works on new sales for the business and candidate interviews. She is also involved with network events and company promotions.
